J starts a storm of barking every time he greets a dog, he doesn't act ugly when he's with them, but it's going to get him into trouble with the wrong dog.
So far I have only allowed him to greet dogs I know are UTD and friendly, and he's done well, but he is very shy and hides behind me woofing until they are close enough to greet.
Not sure what to do here, I don't want it to continue, when he's 80lbs or so and barking like a maniac because he wants to greet another dog, that would certainly hamper his social life, and I would prefer he was a bit of an ambassador, not 'another mean GSD'.
He's only 8 weeks, I understand he's not too sure of himself, but I want him to have friends and be socialized with other dogs, non of my other dogs have been and it is not fun.
He and our neighbors schipperke got on very well, he woofed at her and she did not take him serious at all, she just tucked her butt and zoomed around, play bowing the whole time. So he does like other dogs, he is just a tad scared.
